French Three piece Woest release their debut full length ” La Fin De L’ère Sauvag ” .Woest is an abrasive, vicious, unforgiving, bewildering attack of an album. The band seem to have been lumped in the current trend of blackened Doom Metal or even Dark metal, I think while on the right track it’s a bit of an inaccurate description. While Woest are a Industrail Balck Doom Metal band without a shadow of a doubt they play in a way that seems to have been forgotten of late.
The band don’t concern themselves with technical virtuosity for example but they do hit the listener with a wall of noise. The slow riff, the tortured vocals, the blastbeats found on ” La fin de l’ère sauvage ” and ” Le froid éfface ”. Not to mention the slower murky sections thrown in for good measure on tracks such as “taste the fucking poison” and there’s straight forward headbanging moments on tracks like ”Moelleuse et tiède”.
This is Kind of Metal that puts heaviness and atmosphere first and foremost. They play with a Doom edge and is borderline Industrail in its delivery. ” La Fin De L’ère Sauvage ” is an d album with makes It feels like you are in the front row and the amp is blazing into your ear or you’re watching the band practise. This is a short and direct review but it’s a very direct album. It’s raw, it’s dirty it’s a baseball bat in the face. It’s glorious !
